Sunday - easy ride with Randall in the AM. Did a couple hours and got 34 miles in. I was 6 miles short of winning one of my Plus3 Network challenges. So I rode to the store to by cat food and stopped by the Trek store too. I will be the proud owner of some Ritchey Socks and, after June, have my name in a drawing for a Ritchey Stem. If you have a Garmin on your bike, and/or just want to donate to a cause by riding your bike, check out the Plus3 site. I've raised $50 for Rails to Trails Conservancy just by commuting and riding around. Pretty sweet deal.
Racers I know - Well there were a ton of people at the MTB race that I wish I could have talked to more, but I was officiating. So I had to talk when I could, but keep my focus on the race. There were some Lincoln and Omaha guys that did the TI 5 - Um, anyone that even looked at the starting line of this race has the right to use the term EPIC!
Mid 30s? - 2 other racers, Syd Brown and Aaron Pool did a wee race called Tour of Gila. You know, the one that Lance, Levi, Horner, Kristen Armstrong, and all the fastest racers in America did? Yeah well, Pool ended up 35th (out of 180 starting PROS!!!) and Syd finished 36th!!! All I gotta say is - Nebraska's got talent. Great job you two.
I start work building bikes at HighGear on Tuesday. So it'll be nice to have some extra income, but my riding will suffer. Well actually, I'll probably be riding more now since I'll be riding from my daytime job, to the part time that's 10 miles away. So maybe my weekly mileage will go up. I need the miles.
